Fuchsia Kmart Dresses and Balenciaga Bags

Two pretty pink dresses! I love this bright bold fuchsia pink Kmart uses in their dresses, it's such a fun colour to wear. For extra bold outfits, I added some bright accessories too.


What I wore:

ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
Bracelets: the usual plus vintage silver charm bracelet and Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle
BagBalenciaga envelope clutch in 2012 mangue with giant 12 RGGH


Why I wore it:

Wore this to celebrate Easter with the family. I'm a bit behind with blogging outfits! We headed down the coast for an Easter lunch and a high speed egg hunt. The kids get faster every year, and they had been asking about when the next Easter egg hunt would be since January! They were very excited and pleased with their haul.

My parents had also been doing a bit of spring cleaning, finally opening up some boxes that hadn't been touched since we moved into that house almost 20 years ago! After lunch we started looking through some. It was an incredible time capsule, lots of fun memories and we all ended up going home with a few boxes of things! Tamagotchi (which my kids are loving playing with!), Furby, things from primary school, Gameboy games, it was a treasure trove!

While this fuchsia tiered midi dress is bold enough on it's own I wanted to add a little more colour to it - this mango Balenciaga envelope clutch is such a cheerful colour and I was pleased by how much I liked the two together when I tried it! I wore my Balenciaga sandals too, although they don't match the pink of the dress the mini rose gold hardware matches the hardware on the envelope clutch nicely.

BagBalenciaga First bag in 2006 Blue India


Why I wore it:

Another Kmart fuchsia dress that I love - this one was a very lucky opshop find, just $1! I added some colourful accessories to this dress too, with the blue wooden beaded necklace and turquoise Balenciaga First bag. Blue and pink are so good together, in any combination of shades. For something a little different I added a third colour in with these purple high top sneakers as well that I scored after my sister did a wardrobe clear out a while back.

Had a fun weekend playdate planned with some friends, although the kids were a little upset when one of their friends couldn't come along as he had virus symptoms. He had a negative test but as he wasn't feeling great and coughing he stayed home while we promised to organise another playdate in future. It was nice the playdate could continue with the other boys though, they had a fun time bouncing around on the trampoline, playing laser tag in the back yard and of course building amazing Lego creations. We'd been worried about it raining so that's why I hosted at my house, but it ended up being a really nice day and such a warm morning.

How You Can Wear It:

Fuchsia is a fun bold colour to wear, but it doesn't mean you have to pair it with neutral accessories! Try complimentary or contrasting shoes or bags to create an even more colourful outfit.

  5. I'm loving both of this fuchsia pink dresses, Mica. The colour is an instant pick-me-up, isn't it? The first outfit is my favourite. The pop of "mango" against the bright pink of the dress is stunning! Tamagochi! I'd completely forgotten about that craze! It must have been fun opening up those box. Time capsules indeed! xxx

  9. What an uplifting Easter outfit! I love the bright pink dress with the mango Balenciaga clutch. Also, you can't beat discovering an old box full of Furbies and Tomagatchis. Forget the egg hunt; that's the real find! Your second pink dress outfit is very cool too. I especially heart the necklace. :)

  11. Wow! You look stunning in Fuchsia. It is definitely your color.

  12. Fuchsia is your color girl!!! My gosh it looks stunning on you. Okay, the Easter dress and the yellow purse and the way your hair looks is I think my absolute favorite of ALL TIME! I am always so impressed with your maxi dress options. Send help my way. LOL.

    Sounds like you and the kids had a nice Easter and a real Easter egg hunt sounds like so much fun. My kids who are much older probably even like it. I hope you are having a nice weekend.

  13. “finally opening up some boxes that hadn't been touched since we moved into that house almost 20 years ago!” This could easily be my parents, haha! OMG Tamagotchi! I was so excited about mine! I also had a Nano Baby (similar concept) that I would name after characters in the books I was reading in fifth grade—foreshadowing my English degrees, haha! LOVE the hot pink dress + purple Converse!!

    1. I didn't have a Nano baby but I loved my Tamagotchi so much. I remember being heartbroken when it died! It's fun to see the kids enjoy them so much!

  14. Our last Kmart just closed a few weeks ago, and we don't have any left here in California. Sad face! I always found the best deals there. I love the color of this dress!

    1. It's a shame they closed! They are going strong here as it's a different company despite the same name - they have taken over the failing Target stores :)

  24. Tamagotchi? I haven’t heard that word in a long time! It sounds like you had fun going through those old boxes. You look fabulous in both outfits. I wouldn’t have thought to team pink the yellow of that bag but it works beautifully!

  26. I love both dresses but my favorite is the first one. I just love the longer length and fun ruffled hem. Also, your Balenciaga clutch is super cute! The color is unique since I see lots of neutral. Swoon! I have been trying to schedule play dates for my son. Too bad we don’t live close together. He would SO enjoy having other kids to play with. I hope your week is off to a great start and happy Tuesday!
